ATLANTA — We are monitoring the potential for strong storms early Saturday. This will be from a storm system that brings a severe weather outbreak in the mid-south, where there is a Level 3 out of 5 risks of severe weather.

Storms will be weakening as they track into our area from Alabama. Nonetheless, an isolated stronger storm is possible. The main threat is damaging winds. The tornado threat looks very low overall but not zero. Storms will bring heavy rain as well.

Storms are moving across northwest Georgia early this morning. They'll move across the metro area between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m.

By late morning, the storms are racing east of our area and continue to weaken as they do so.

We'll have a break in storm action around midday Saturday. Then, isolated showers and storms could redevelop in the afternoon. Any late day storm could also become strong to severe with heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning.
